From the aboriginal word meaning "many wings", Waikerie is the western gateway to the Riverland and well known for the production of citrus and stone fruits. Here, you'll find one of the longest stretches of accessible riverbank and the width of the river makes it popular for water sports and fishing.
You will have the opportunity to explore the township at your leisure and visit some of the town's attractions and shops all within walking distance:
Waikerie District Machinery and Preservation Museum run by volunteers who collect and restore stationary engines, tractors, machinery and memorabilia of yesteryear.
Rain Moth Gallery and see the wide range of art and craft from Riverland and South Australian Artists. The Gallery supports local and interstate artists with a wide range of artwork for that special gift and has regularly changing exhibitions.
The Cobweb Art and Craft is a local store run by local volunteers which sells a variety of hand knits, homemade goodies & arts & craft items.
The Cave of Wonders is a unique gift, jewellery, clothing and accessories store.
Waikerie Bakery (good coffee), Post Office, Terry White Chemist, Big River Supermarket, Waikerie Milk Shop (ice-cream), Woolworths & Waikerie Hotel.
